The Colder War

12-09-2006 18:25

An old article - but worth revisiting. This is a little disseminated story about how America - under Prez Carter - created, funded and trained the Taliban. This is the selfsame Taliban who violate women's and human rights, and against whom the war of terror - sorry! war on terror - is perpetrated, killing untold thousands of innocents in the process, reversing human rights and civil liberties in the name of freedom, etc., when meanwhile, back at the ranch - this was an enemy bought and paid for by the Americans. This needs to be widely circulated and the leaders of the so-called "democratic" and "freedom-loving" nations called to account for their atrocities.

Roof of St.Pauls Cathedral occupied to commemorate 9/11

12-09-2006 14:21

I case you were wondering 9/11 is not just the anniversary of General Pinochett's US backed coup which installed a fascist government and murdered 30,000 people. Nor is it just the day that the people of New York discovered what it is like to be Palestinian.

It is also the day that Gandhi announced his strategy of peaceful non violent direct action. A way of doing things that would eventually see the liberation of an entire continent and inspiration for many of the great civil rights movements of the last 100 years.

Whether or not such tactics could work now is a matter of debate. One of the first things that US troops did when 'liberating' Iraq was to gun down 'peaceful non violent' demonstrators demanding jobs from the 'Coalition' government. Personally I think that if Gandhi was alive now he would be carrying an AK47 and dedicating his spare time to making roadside bombs.

Anyway, yesterday was the 100th anniversary of Gandhi's declaration. So to remember the great man and his work, 3 women occupied the roof of St.Pauls Cathedral and dropped a banner. Below is their press release.

American Women Chained to Afghan Embassy on 9/11/2006
American Women Demonstrate in Chains and Burkas Against Afghan Embassy on 9/11

"America did not invent human rights. In a very real sense, it is the other way around. Human rights invented America." - President Jimmy Carter

Following that credo, on September 11, 2006, American women handcuffed and chained themselves to the Afghan Embassy in Washington, DC to protest against Hamid Karzai's oppressive government. A spokeswoman stated that this was "just the start of demonstrations against the Afghan Embassy in Washington to protest President Karzai's illegal imprisonment of innocent Americans and treatment of Afghan women." The women also announced that demonstrations will take place at the Afghan embassies in Washington and London on October 12th, 2006.

Blair: Beating Washington’s war drum in the Middle East

12-09-2006 09:01

Blair’s pose as a peacemaker is, in fact, aimed at neutralising popular opposition to the creation of a truncated Palestinian entity, with Israel permanently annexing much of the West Bank and the whole of Jerusalem. At the same time, he wants to offer some respite to Olmert, who like Blair has been badly weakened by the failure to defeat Hezbollah in Lebanon. More important still, he is seeking to create the best conditions for Israel, as the key regional ally of Washington, to be able to focus its political and military capabilities against Iran and Syria.
